Family Unwrapping



Elected officials at all levels of government know that paid sick days will make Virginia a better place to work and live.

Politician Greeting Children

Virginians need to be able to stay home when they’re sick - but more than 1.2 million Virginians do not have a paid sick day policy, including a majority of essential workers during the Coronavirus crisis. Paid sick days will allow Virginians to care for their own health needs or those of a family member including going to the doctor and getting tested for Coronavirus. We believe it’s time for Virginia to pass a paid sick days policy that keeps Virginians healthy, saves Virginia money, and keeps our businesses open and safe.
